"Tunick dirigiert uns vor den Gletscher. «Wer Streifen vom Sonnenbaden hat, soll ganz nach hinten! Schaut zu mir! Nicht lachen!» Der militärische Befehlston macht uns Nackedeis nichts aus. Tunick drängt vorwärts: «Jetzt alle umdrehen! Nein, nicht den ganzen Körper, nur den Kopf! Sie auch, da hinten! Sir, Kopf in diese Richtung!» Der Angesprochene versteht nicht, was er tun soll, macht einen Schritt in die von Tunick angezeigte Richtung. «Nein, den Kopf sollen Sie drehen! Dann reisst Tunicks Geduldsfaden: «Holt den Mann sofort da raus!» Langsam wirds kühl. Als Nächstes müssen wir die Schuhe ausziehen und uns auf einen Felsbrocken setzen. Der Stein ist eiskalt! Wir haben alle Hühnerhaut. Nicht nur wegen der Kälte. Hier entsteht gerade ein Bild, das um die Welt gehen wird."

"Une affaire artistique qui coûte combien? Difficile d’obtenir des chiffres exacts. Greenpeace a pris en charge une bonne partie de la logistique. Et surtout, l’organisation écologiste a déboursé plus de 20 000 fr. pour se payer Tunick. «Nous avons trouvé un accord, parce qu’une telle opération coûte bien plus chère», reconnaît le porte-parole. A ce prix-là, l’ONG obtient la moitié des droits des photos, paye l’artiste ainsi que ses six assistants. A savoir, un directeur de projet, des réalisateurs et des photographes documentaristes, engagés uniquement pour gérer l’événement. L’équipe, arrivée jeudi soir, reste trois jours sur place. Avec le seul cachet suisse, l’artiste ne couvre pas ses frais.

Pourtant, le New-Yorkais ne risque pas de travailler à perte. «Je vis grâce aux ventes de mon art, affirme-t-il. Une photo peut se vendre entre 4000 et 30 000 dollars. » "

"So Greenpeace may not have attracted much attention to a melting glacier topped with nudists. At least among relaxed Europeans. But the reaction of middle America to Janet Jackson’s "wardrobe malfunction" in the half-time show at American football’s Superbowl in 2004 shows that a glimpse of nipple can still arouse hostility in some places. And the repeated arrest of Stephen Gough, a renowned British naked rambler, reveals that on the European side of the Atlantic persistent nudity, at least, draws a response. The lesson may be that for nudity to generate publicity for a cause these days it must be crude, repeated or preferably involve a celebrity."
